New Things To Do This Summer in Pigeon Forge

As always, the fun is growing in Pigeon Forge. This summer will be no exception. The city is continuously stepping up to the plate to keep family fun and entertainment up-to-date and alive. With every visit, we always have new things to check out along with making some of our old, familiar stops.

These are a few of the things on our list to check out this summer:

New places to stay:

Dollywood has opened the Dollywood  DreamMore Resort and Margaritaville Island Hotel is now open on The Island. Both of these are first class hotels that are sure to make a stay in Pigeon Forge enjoyable and relaxing.

New places to eat:

Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen is now open!! This is so exciting and Paula Deen herself has been making some appearances there as well.  A new breakfast stop for us will be Sawyer’s Farmhouse Breakfast. Breakfast really is our favorite meal of the day, so we can’t wait to check this place out!

Harpoon Harry’s Crab House is located along the Little Pigeon River and has a great outdoor patio. Looks like a great way to end the day!

New attractions to visit:

The Island Ropes course at The Island recently opened. It is 4 stories tall and looks like a great way to play while hanging out at the Island. There is a new Forensic Science exhibit at Wonderworks. This is one of our girls’ favorite stops and we are looking forward to checking this exhibit out. Summer and water just go together so riding down the hill in an OGO (outdoor gravity orb) filled with water at the Outdoor Gravity Park sounds like a good activity for a hot summer day!

New shows to see:

Dixie Stampede has a new state of the art show for 2015. The Magic Beyond Belief show at the Smoky Mountain Opry and Imagination on Sand at the Sable Theater are also new this year. Our family is ready to sit back and enjoy these shows!

Great summer events:

The Patriot Festival on 4th of July is a great time. There is lots of food, activities, and musical entertainment for the whole family. Don’t want to miss the Great American Summer at Dollywood either. Extended hours and 6 new shows should make for a great summer day of fun!

So much to see and do…….time to get packing for that Pigeon Forge vacation!!
